At St Anne’s we will be delivering the Computing curriculum using the Purple Mash scheme. Within Purple Mash, there is a Mini Mash section – just for Reception and Nursery Children.
We want all children to leave the school at the end of Year 6 with a clear understanding of computing; understanding the relevance of it in their lives, and knowing how to be safe within the world of technology. We provide:
- A progressive knowledge and skills based curriculum throughout the school
- Teaching staff with supportive and developmental CPD to support delivery
- Progressive Purple Mash scheme of work, knowledge and skills progression implemented to cover:
- Digital Literacy
- Computational Thinking
- Knowledge and Understanding of Computers and Hardware.
- Progressive E-safety implemented throughout the school
- Teachers will use the Purple Mash scheme of work to deliver an inclusive and aspirational curriculum where all children are all able to access and make progress in Computing.
Our discrete Computing curriculum is planned to ensure that all children are able to access and complete tasks to a high standard. Children reflect upon and evaluate their work and others. Impact is captured in End of Unit quizzes to show progression in knowledge and skills and to reflect pride.
Computing skills are also taught and used in a cross curricular way, with coverage evident in varied subject areas. Children are encouraged to be aware of the knowledge and skills they gain and make connections with prior learning and across the wider curriculum. Where necessary, Computing is taught discretely.
